This exhibition is full of memories from my travels throughout Australia from the stunning Blue Mountains to the colourful red centre to the crystal blue oceans we are surrounded by. My passion is to paint en plein air meaning in the outdoors. The process is both challenging and rewarding. Every year I come to this Blue Mountain area to absorb the unique Australian light painting onsite from dawn to dusk. There is something special about painting from life in the light of day. You see colour more richly and tones more deeply. Retreating to my studio I then create artworks from my memories and plein air sketches.
My purpose it to shine a light into the community through art. The moment between night and day as light fills the sky with colour, this Kairos moment, brings me deep joy. To capture the light and allow people to take the time to just breath in the atmosphere and exhale at the beauty in our landscape. I aim to share the light of God that lives in me and is revealed in creation into the lives of others to bring just a little more joy into their hearts.
